Which of these statements by Barack Obama is true? ANSWER: Neither! "We will be out of Afghanistan by the end of this year. Combat operations in Afghanistan have ended." --Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama
At about 21:39 in this YouTube video interview of 28 January 2011, President Obama declares, "As I said, we will be out of Afghanistan by the end of this year." Then he declares, "Combat operations in Afghanistan have ended." Neither of these statements is accurate. The Commander-in-Chief of American Forces confused Afghanistan with Iraq. Just imagine if President George W. Bush had made such a mistake. The American media would have beat him over the head as a stupid pawn of Dick Cheney, or worse. Instead, the press has almost entirely ignored Obama's ignorance.
IMAGINE Media Reaction -- If Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman had said such a thing, even though neither one of them is the leader of the Free World, as is Barack Obama.
